Granddaughter Jeep build

Well, this morning we picked up a new to us 1964 CJ5 for our granddaughter.
She was absolutely thrilled. She just turn 14, so I have a couple of years to fix it up. It's basically stock. The tentative plan is to get a V6 (225/231 or 4.3),
SM420 or SM465 and an overdrive as this thing tops out at appx. 50mph. Also looking to do a hanging pedal vacuum brakes and power steering. I'll also be looking for a narrow track D30 front and a one-piece axle rear D44. Some parts that came with it I'll probably sell off, a PTO drive, the driveshaft for it and the PTO front winch. There's a full set of manuals and a brand new Willys tailgate.

Her mother has a 1984 CJ7 with 4" lift, D44's with Detroit's front/rear, Mustang 5.0L/NV4500. The plan is the granddaughter wants her own Jeep to follow her mother.

She's been bugging her mom to drive the CJ7, so we figure this is a great solution. Next weekend we'll let the granddaughter start to learn how to drive it.
We live on a private dirt road so she can't hurt much.

Nice! Drove right through there this weekend too. Lots of jeeps in that area waiting to be bought. I may be convinced to sell my D18/OD if you can't find one nearby.

Well, we decided to get the D30 front wilez5150 offered to sell us. We'd planned to go to Big Bear for the day on Saturday anyway, so we'll swing by his place and pick it up on the way.

Today the wife and I are doing a day trip up to the mountains (Big Bear) and we're swinging just to the north of there on the way up to pick up a narrow track D30 front axle with disc brakes to replace the D27/drum brake front on the Jeep.

Got home just after 5pm yesterday and it was still 106*, so we waited until this morning to unload the D30. It's in good shape and came with 2 brand new Super Winch hubs and a spare used one. wilez5150 also through in some bent 1" tubes to make front flat fenders.
